Are your current commercial cleaners doing a satisfactory job?

If you think you have hired the best commercial cleaning company for your business, you would expect to get your money’s worth in terms of satisfaction. But how can you tell if this is the case? Aside from the obvious things such as a clean floor or fresh scents, how do you know that the supposedly best commercial cleaning company is doing a satisfactory job?

Here are some things to take note of to help make this decision…

Time management

Do your cleaners arrive on time? Do they complete their work within the agreed-upon time period? If they are clocking off early, this could be due to them cutting corners. And if there is a specific cleaning schedule, are they sticking to it?


It is worth checking to see if your cleaners are turning up with a good amount of equipment. Is the equipment they’re bringing to a high enough standard for completing the job? If they agreed to use the best products available when you signed the contract, be sure to check that they are still using it today.

Who are your cleaners?

A reputable cleaning company will often send the same cleaner/s each week unless someone falls ill or is away. If you find that you are met with a stranger each week, this can sometimes point to numerous problems, whether it be hiring unqualified cleaners or simply not being able to keep their staff, it is usually better to see the same faces each week.

Cleaning standards

Think about the quality of the cleaning service you received when they first came on board. Now, think about the quality today. Do they match up or have they worsened over time? If the latter, there is a chance that your cleaning company have become lazy over the years. This could be a sign that it’s time to move onto better things.

Here are some things to look out for when checking the quality of their work:

  • How clean are the surfaces?
  • Are the door handles clean to touch?
  • Have all bins been emptied?
  • Is the storage cupboard organised and well-dusted?
  • Is the communal area clean and welcoming for your staff?
